The weather is hot and so is the bite!! Many people talk about the "dog days"
of summer...how the bite gets tough on their lake this time of year...that there is to much this or that going on therefor the bite is off...well this is NOT the case on Devils Lake!!!
We are catching lots and lots if walleyes! We are catching some very nice fish as well...Seems like everyday we have a few fish that push the 5-8 pound range.
Perch are also being caught and some of them are flat out huge! We have had some dandy Pike being caught mixed in with our walleyes...the bottom line is that the bite is good and there is still time to plan that trip to Devils Lake!

And the bite goes on!!
We are catching most of our walleyes in 22 to 32 feet of water. We have moved around a lot and fished many different areas of the lake and had good luck in nearly all of them... Our best presentation has been a bottom bouncer and spinner with either nightcrawler or a plastic gulp/crawler. Best spinner blades have been chartreuse orange pink and on sunny days hammered gold or silver. We're catching a lot of walleyes in the 14 to 18 inch range with a few larger ones mixed in...We are also catching some jumbo perch with a few of the measuring over 14 inches... Northern pike have been scattered in with the walleyes and there are days we catch a fair amount of them as well.
This is a fun time of year to be on Devils Lake so get out there and enjoy the rest of summer!!
